Powerful semiconductor TCAD device simulation software for the design, analysis and optimization of semiconductor-based optoelectronic components

Product Overview

DEVICE employs the industry proven drift-diffusion equations to model steady state and transient behavior of charge carriers in semiconductors. Using advanced finite-element mesh generation algorithms, DEVICE is capable of efficiently handling arbitrary geometries, enabling accurate modeling of innovative integrated optoelectronic designs.

DEVICE provides users with a complete set of tools to design and evaluate semiconductors, including integrated process simulation, comprehensive physical material models and robust numerical algorithms for device simulation.

When combined with MODE Solutions, Lumerical’s waveguide design environment, DEVICE provides a powerful tool for the design and analysis of active components such as high speed optoelectronic modulators.

Along with FDTD Solutions, MODE Solutions, and INTERCONNECT, DEVICE is a key part of Lumerical’s comprehensive photonic design and analysis tools. All of Lumerical’s solvers provide support for data import/export and integration into common EDA tools, enabling complete product design flows from component architecture and optimization to large scale device and system design.



  • Decreased product development costs via highly-accurate algorithms with built-in optimization that allows for rapid virtual prototyping, reducing the need for costly physical prototypes
  • Increased productivity via design tools engineered with ease-of-use in mind to facilitate fast learning and rapid deployment
  • Comprehensive feature set allows flexibility to address diverse applications and design phases in one integrated device simulation environment
  • Easy integration with Lumerical photonic design tools for complete characterization of optoelectronic devices in an efficient workflow



DEVICE addresses a wide variety of applications involving electrical characterization of silicon-based semiconductor devices.
